CinéSalon • January & February 2017 Comedy on Film:
the French Laugh? Tuesdays at 4 & 7:30pm
What makes the French laugh? This winter, go beyond Amélie and slapstick comedy to discover some of the darkest, cleverest, and most uproarious films to come out of France in the past 25 years. In styles that range from dystopian to madcap to tender, each of these incredible movies has an offbeat sense of humor that will make you think as well as laugh.
In the spirit of the French ciné-clubs and literary salons, CinéSalon pairs an engaging French film with a social post-screening wine & beer reception. Every 7:30pm screening will be introduced by a high-profile personality in the arts.
Films in French with English subtitles unless otherwise noted.
